Bathroom faucets are one of the most used bathroom fixtures in your home. They need to be durable and functional. The right faucet is also a design statement, and is a great way to show off your bathroom.
Picking the right faucet:
If you are replacing a bathroom faucet, it is important to take note of the existing installation type. Your vanity or wall mounted faucet may require a certain installation type. The types of faucet installation are:
Wide-spread: Faucet and handles are not connected. Typically requires three holes for installation.
Centerset: Faucet and handles are connected, creating a more compact look. Typically requires three holes for installation.
Single Hole: A single faucet with a lever. It requires only one hole for installation. Single hold faucets have a more modern appearance and style.
Vessel: Same as single hole faucet, except it is designed for vessel sinks.
